I’m not a good judge of crowds, but It was over 1,000 just from my counting. Also note it was 90 degrees out there! Us New Englanders don’t do well in the heat, but we bear it when we need to!
I didn’t want to be the asshole calling a crowd of 1,000, 10,000, because I really don’t know what 1,000 people looks like just from looking at a crowd. I knew it was HUGE, but I didn’t know how big.
Well the numbers are out CBS is reporting:
About 2,000 gun rights advocates have rallied outside the Massachusetts Statehouse to protest Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey’s crackdown on the sale and manufacture of what she’s called copycat assault weapons.
Activists attending the Saturday rally said Healey is taking rogue actions that will turn thousands of gun owners into “future felons.”
But of course Joe points out those assholes headline it as “hundreds”.
I heard the police estimate of the crowd was 5000-6500, but I don’t have a published source for that number.
